What is HeartMath® and Who is it for?
HeartMath®, founded in 1991 by Doc Childre, is a system of effective, scientifically-based tools and technology to help manage your energy, your stress level, your resilience, and your social interactions as you connect your heart and mind. HeartMath® learning programs and the emWave® and Inner Balance™ self-regulation technology are based on more than 400 studies conducted over 30 years on the psychophysiology of stress, resilience, and the interactions between the heart and brain, known as coherence.
HeartMath® system has been used in a wide variety of settings including schools, hospitals, the military, and businesses to help people feel better and become more productive in their lives. The studies document significant reductions in feelings of stress, improved sleep, improved mental capacity, improved worker satisfaction, improved social interactions as well as improved physical conditions such as blood pressure, respiratory, endocrine and cardiovascular health.

I am now a HeartMath® Certified Trainer and Trauma-Sensitive Clinical Coach
Many of you know I was in the classroom for 20 years: first as a high school teacher and then, as a college adjunct instructor in FGCU’s College of Education. I loved teaching and I loved my students, however, I did not learn how to emotionally self-regulate from the stress of caring for all my students. HeartMath® was the missing piece in my healing and my client’s and student’s healing. No matter how many changes that I made in my lifestyle, diet, exercise, sleep, and detox strategies, my healing was being hampered by nervous system dysregulation and an underlying subtle but chronic feeling of stress, overwhelm, fear, and anxiety. These kinds of stresses often go unnoticed until they result in chronic health conditions and burn-out.
Working with the HeartMath® tools, I have learned to self-regulate my emotions and get my heart and brain into a state of coherence. I now share dozens of strategies with teachers and other clients in trainings and coaching sessions. Read more in my blogs. Connecting with your heart and regulating your nervous system can open up the place of healing that is accessible to you at any time no matter what is going on in your health, your relationship, the classroom, or the world.
